Since the outbreak, many Hong Kong people have not traveled for 3 or 4 years. With the loosening of individual travel policies in various countries, many Hong Kong people have also restarted their travel mood. Have you ever observed some people’s small behavior when traveling abroad, so that you can recognize him as “one of us” at a glance? Cultural differences are naturally exposed, but some netizens said that Hong Kong people are self-centered, and they even take stock of their faux pas when traveling.

The 4 signature traits of Hong Kong people are most easily recognized outside: Japan is the most common

Recalling that before the epidemic, Hong Kong people preferred to travel as soon as they had time during the holidays, leaving Hong Kong, a “small place”, for a while to relax. Speaking of the first tourist hotspot, it must be the hometown of Hong Kong people – Japan. After arriving in Japan, a place with a very different culture from Hong Kong, the following are the four characteristics that make Hong Kong people recognize themselves at a glance.

Trait 1: Jumbo suitcase

I have to admit that the purchasing power of Hong Kong people is amazing, although they don’t walk around the street with suitcases or hold goods outside the store. It’s just that when you see a huge suitcase at the airport, there’s a good chance it’s from Hong Kong. When you go to some large supermarkets in Taiwan and South Korea, it feels like you are back in Hong Kong. When you enter, there are Hong Kong people shopping for snacks and daily necessities, and putting the trophies and souvenirs into the oversized suitcase at one time.

Trait 2: Hong Kong people have a super fast pace

Several Taiwanese people once asked, “Why do Hong Kong people walk so fast?” That’s right, Hong Kong people are used to rushing back to work, back to school, catch a ride, and back to their homes every day…so the walking speed Comparable to the crown of the world. If you go to other countries, and you see people nimbly shuttling among the crowds and playing on the phone with their heads down, ninety percent of them are Hong Kong people.

Trait 3: Do not enter restaurants with Chinese characters

When you go to a foreign country, you must try foreign traditional tastes. When you see a “Welcome Chinese” sign outside the door, or a restaurant with a few tourist buses parked at the door, you will never patronize it. Even if you can’t understand the menu, and there is no picture on the menu, Hong Kong people will go in. Some netizens think that there are restaurants with Chinese characters: “I don’t think it’s unreasonable not to go to a restaurant with Chinese characters when traveling. I have been to Japan twice, and most of the restaurants with Chinese single signs are prostrate… and To be able to learn Chinese means to do business with tourists, so you can figure out how authentic and traditional you are in doing business with tourists.”

Trait 4: Book a seat and release the plane

As mentioned above, many Hong Kong people seek to enjoy the local taste, so they choose to go to Japanese food Omakase, and popular Japanese restaurants usually require reservations in advance, and they cannot choose the menu for the night, which is completely arranged by the chef. manage.

Most of the sushi restaurants are small-scale operations, and the number of seats is 10. The chef must prepare fresh ingredients. If you book a table but don’t make a no-show, who will pay for the loss of the store? (Image source: Blue Orange)

Japanese sushi restaurants will purchase ingredients according to the number of customers who have booked a table on the day, but I have seen many examples on the Internet of Hong Kong people who have booked a table and put it on the plane. The Japanese do not charge fees when making reservations, and at most will only show a warm reminder: “If the reservation does not show up, it will cause us a lot of trouble~”

But for the Japanese, not only will it cause food waste, but they will also have to pay more for ingredients, which will cause trouble. It’s just that Hong Kong people are used to no-show reservations without consequences, and at most they will leave empty tables for other guests.

There was a single case before that a Hong Kong person claimed that they could not find the homestay due to heavy snowfall and then lost contact. The homestay once thought that the guest had been killed. Zhong alarmed the local police and the Hong Kong Immigration Department to search for them. It turned out that they were safe all the time, but they did not disclose their whereabouts! (Image source: webpage screenshot)
